MSc/PGDip/PGCert in Natural Computation at U of Birmingham

Natural computation is the study of computational systems that use ideas and get inspirations from natural systems, including biological, ecological and physical systems. It is an emerging interdisciplinary area in which techniques and methods are studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems. This exciting programme will cover a number of topics, such as evolutionary algorithms, co-evolution, evolutionary design, nature-inspired optimisation techniques, evolutionary games, novel learning algorithms, artificial neural networks, theory of natural computation, molecular computation and quantum computation. The primary aim of this advanced MSc is to provide a solid foundation in natural computation for graduates to pursue a research and/or development career in industry or to pursue further studies (e.g., PhD).
